One of the conundrums that was always going to be facing Unai Emery at Arsenal was how he would line up his attack in the Premier League. The Gunners have the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Danny Welbeck, Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi to consider and finding the balance was never going to be easy.

Most Arsenal fans are in agreement that Aubameyang is the club’s best striker and Emery seems to agree as he’s started both games that the club has played this season. However, the fans are desperate to see Lacazette start alongside Auba in attack as the two have struck up quite the relationship off the pitch. The fans are keen to see how the two would fare together over 90 minutes and it seems like a matter of time until Emery gives them that.
Aubameyang missed a golden opportunity to level the scores at 1-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and seconds after his miss he watched on as Alvaro Morata doubled Chelsea’ advantage. The Gabonese striker’s miss probably won’t be enough to convince Emery to drop him but he may opt to give the ex-Dortmund man some more support at the top end of the pitch in the form of Lacazette.

Hopefully we see them together from the start on Saturday
